Look into my eyes! They are mesmerizing. You want to give me treats...lots of treats. My name is Jonas. I have eyes that search deep into your soul. I also have a personality that you can’t help but like. I can always put a smile on your face. I love to run free and have lots of energy so won't tire out on you. I love being around people and other dogs for play time. I am really excited to meet dogs and people and sometimes forget my best manners in all of the excitement, lessons are helping me to be better with these introductions. Another energetic friendly dog in the house would be great or a family that would enjoy spending time with me to get daily exercise. Fetch and keeping a watch over yard projects are some of my favorite things to do. I would love to have a fenced in back yard or access to an open area to run. Besides my eyes, did you see my ears? Those are cute too! And my tan eyebrows? You can tell that I am thinking really hard when they squish together. I am really good at sitting for treats and I love people and have made friends with the resident dog. I like the cat too. I like high fiving with her if she is on the other side of a gate or hanging out on the floor while she is up in her cat tree in the same room, although sometimes I do get a little excited to introduce myself if there are no boundaries between us, which she isn't always keen on, given my size and exuberance. I think I am getting the hang of this dog thing. My foster humans gave me my own house inside the big house (crate)! I am sooo lucky! I get to sleep in my little house at night and when my foster family is away. I am looking to move my little house into my new family’s big house. Did I mention I am cute?

Jonas is estimated to be 1 year old and 46 lbs. Since we don't know at all what doggy genes are in the dogs make up (we don't know who mom and dad are!), we are just guessing on breed.

All dogs are spayed or neutered prior to adoption. They have all had a vet exam, are up to date on vaccinations, have been given a dewormer, are treated for fleas, have a heartworm test if over 6 months old and are up to date on a heartworm preventative.

Please note that because we require a home visit at the time of adoption we can only place animals in homes within a 60 mile radius of Minneapolis.If you are interested in meeting this dog please fill out the pre-adoption application on our website at under Adopt and we will get back to you to arrange a meeting in the foster home.

About Safe Hands Animal Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Safe Hands Animal Rescue is dedicated to saving lives and finding forever homes for stray, abandoned and surrendered dogs in high kill shelters. We are now incorporated and 501(c)3 pending. Of great importance to us is to reduce the stray population and need for healthy animal euthanasia through spay/neuter programs, education, and promotion of respect for the furry creatures that share our lives.

We are a small, no-kill, volunteer run organization. All of our dogs listed are in foster homes waiting to be adopted and because of this, we get to know the dogs' personalities very well and use this information to match them to an appropriate home. We do not have a physical shelter.

This rescue is not funded by public funds nor does it receive many donations so it is dependent on adoption fees to keep operating. We have a great need for foster homes. If you are interested in providing foster care, and live within an hour of the Twin Cities, please e-mail us
Donations ALWAYS needed are: dog crates, puppy pee pads, natures miracle (for pet stain removal), Nutrisource brand puppy and dog food, Lysol disinfecting wipes, paper towels, large clean towels, dog toys, leashes, collars and gas cards to help with our transports.

Our Adoption Process...

We only adopt out animals to homes within 60 miles of the Twin Cities. Our adoption process begins with the return of our pre-adoption form, available upon request or on our website. After reviewing your application a meeting is scheduled between you and the pup, sometimes in the fosters home or at a neutral dog friendly place. If any resident dogs are in your home, it is recommended that the pups meet at this time. After the meeting a home visit is scheduled and if everything goes well with the visit the adoption is finalized at that time. A home visit by one of Safe Hands representitives is REQUIRED prior to finalizing any adoption and we must meet all members of the household where the pup will be living sometime during the adoption process.
